Enjoying our Backyard

We tried out a new recipe from “Bite Me: A Stomach-Satisfying, Visually Gratifying, Fresh-Mouthed Cookbook”, which we got as a housewarming gift. The recipe is called Magical Moroccan Chicken and it consists of marinated and … Continue reading »

Tandoori Chicken and a BBQ

One of the things that Marie and I were really excited for about getting a house was the ability to have a barbecue grill.

Long-Awaited Update

Sorry we haven’t updated the blog in so long! We’re starting to settle into our new home. We love it here and most of our exploring lately has been just driving around through the neighborhoods of Seattle – nothing particularly picture or blog-worthy. The weather has been amazing lately! We’ve lost count of how many consecutive … Continue reading »

Alki Beach Park

Since we have so many blueberries, I decided that it was time to do something with them! What a brilliant idea, huh? 😛 I always make blueberry muffins with mix from a box, so yesterday was my first time making blueberry muffins from scratch.

Munchkin & Tandoori Chicken

A few days ago, Nick and I bought Munchkin, a role-playing card game that we’ve been wanting to try out. On Saturday, we went down to visit Amanda and brought Munchkin with us. We had fun wielding the Rapier of Unfairness while wearing the Horny Helmet. Together, we fought monsters like the Gelatinous Octahedron, Flying … Continue reading »

Magnuson Park

One of the awesome things about our new apartment is that we live right next to Seattle’s second largest park, Magnuson Park. It is located on a former Navy airfield and there are still old military buildings throughout the park. Seattleites even play tennis in the old hangar. Nick and I visited Magnuson Park for … Continue reading »
